Quote of the Day: Porky’s

hqdefault
Wendy: [answering the phone behind the counter at the roadside diner] Deadbeats.

Pee Wee Morris: [into pay phone, disguising his voice] Hello. Hi. I’m lookin’ for a friend of mine. He’s s’posed to be there.

Wendy: Uh, what’s his name?

Pee Wee Morris: His name’s Michael Hunt… uh Mike, Mike. Yes, Mike.

Wendy: Mike Hunt? Okay, just hang on a minute.

[raising her voice to address the patrons]

Wendy: Is Mike Hunt here?

[Pee Wee laughs]

Wendy: Is Mike Hunt here?

[several patrons begin to snicker]

Wendy: Has anybody seen Mike Hunt?

[patrons begin to cackle uncontrollably]

Meat: Practically everybody in town, from what I hear.

Yesterday I saw my love light shine
Straight ahead in front of me
You never really know
When love will come or go
